jill schlesinger says they could be the best way to slide into a well paying job. internships aren't just something you do in college anymore. >> reporter: an interesting and lasting effect of the great recession is how much employers rely on internships to identify potential job candidates. internships allow you to learn relevant skills and grow your professional network. they can be especially valuable for career changers and parents seeking to re-enter the workforce. the good news is that unpaid internships in the for-profit world are a thing of the past. the national association of colleges and employers says 97.5%. internships are paid and the average hourly wage for interns with a bachelor's degree is $16.35. linkedin analyzed industries where internships are more likely to lead to full-time jobs. it found that the public relations and communications industry 61 out of every 1,000 hires are interns. almost 60% of those who interned at accounting firms accepted full-time jobs at the same company following their internship. in the bay area, there are more than 250 full time, part time and college credit internship positions available in various

i'm frank mallicoat. nearly 5:30. a silicon valley company could be the tesla of the truck world. >> kiet do explains how right speed is converting dirty trucks into lean clean electric machines and it's something you'll only see on 5. reporter: deep in the heart of silicon valley is the geekiest, dare i say sexiest delivery truck you will ever see. >> um, how does it drive? >> why don't you drive it and see? >> ready? >> all right, hang on. here we go. oh, my goodness! on the outside it looks like a typical delivery truck but its v-8 engine and drive train were removed and replaced with a 26- kilowatt battery and pair of electric motors that have been throttled down from 500 to 200- horsepower. >> why would you want to give
up 500-horsepower? [ indiscernible ] [ laughter ] >> reporter: the result is sports car-like instant acceleration and power. to stop the truck, you actually just let off the gas and braking kicks in and brings the vehicle to a complete stop. you essentially just drive the truck with one pedal. >> reporter: right speed's ceo ian wright says garbage trucks typically burn on average 14,000 gallons of fuel a year and spend thousands of dollars replacing the brakes. >> when you brake in the traditional sense you're throwing money away. you're taking energy you got by burning fuel which you paid for and you're just throwing it away as heat in the brakes what we do instead is use the electric motors as generators and we put that energy back in the battery so you can use it the next time you accelerate. >> reporter: companies are taking notice. the ratto group a waste management company in santa rosa has already begun converting their fleet to meet tough new emissions standards and save money.
wright speed expects to grow 10 times bigger and have more than 200 employees by 2018. and wright himself has electric vehicle street cred. he is one of the cofounders of tesla with elon musk. is he jealous of you? >> i don't think so. he is on a different mission. he loves what we're doing. he says it's great, of course everybody does. >> reporter: imagine a future where garbage trucks run cleaner, faster, cheaper, and more quietly. what's not sexy about that? and so the range of these trucks is about 40 miles on the battery. after that, the jet turbine kicks in runs on natural gas that powers the generator and that makes the truck go even farther with fewer emissions and much cheaper fuel source. so kind of a win-win-win all the way around. >> fascinating. i'm imagining not having a brake though. that was interesting concept. but how much does all of of this cost, kiet? >> reporter: so, your typical garbage truck can run about a
half million dollars. a lot of these will be outdated once this new emissions law kicks in. you can convert one of these trucks for about $200,000. and according to wright speed you can recover that money in about 4 years. we're live in san jose, kiet do, kpix 5. >> i'm going to go out on a limb and say kiet probably enjoyed doing that story maybe a little bit. >> i think so christmas i give my garbage man a christmas gift because your garbage man knows what's in your life. >> and your postman. >> they know. it's true. right. it's nice to be friendly, too. [ laughter ] >> hi, everybody! we have some visibility issues this morning. we have some areas with some dense fog in the santa rosa area, also in san rafael. and currently as you head out the door, we have a variety of numbers from the 30s into the 40s. it's now 50 in half moon bay and san jose. it's 50 in mountain view where we do have cloud cover. 38 degrees from vallejo into napa and santa rosa this
morning with visibilities down to a quarter mile due to fog from the central valley. temperatures in the 60s across the board but we anticipate record warmth this weekend. that's coming up at 5748. >> thank you -- that's coming up at 5:48. >> thank you, roberta. a traffic alert in san leandro. it could be out there for a while longer. they are saying 7 a.m. they are going to have that left lane blocked northbound 880 at marina boulevard. there was an early-morning fender-bender actually an overnight -- it happened around 3 a.m. and it did some damage to the sand barrels, it turns out, in the area. so there are crews out there trying to repair it. fortunately traffic is still light. but just a reminder if you are heading to oakland airport maybe later on this morning. that's "kcbs traffic." back to you guys. >> thank you, liz. new this morning, a unique look at a man facing a life-and- death situation. kpix 5's anne makovec joins us in the newsroom and has cockpit video of the pilot whose plane
had a parachute that saved him over the weekend. anne. >> reporter: he ran out of fuel and knew his plane was about to fall into the ocean. but instead of panicking, this pilot lived in the moment. we now have a new view of it recorded by the pilot himself. >> i love you took on a different meaning. >> reporter: leu morton calmly told his father he loved him as the coast guard filmed his cirrus plane fall from the sky and deploy a parachute. >> it's definitely been one that's seen by lots of people. >> reporter: you might have seen this video. >> the parachute deploys just like it's designed. >> reporter: but morton also shot his own gopro video which shows him gaze toward the ocean and the cruise ship that came to save him and then he shows the parachute billowing above him. he even mouths the words, this is going to be fun. >> i just passed one big hurdle. but now i still have all these other hurdles to go through. >> reporter: next up how to crash his plane into the pacific ocean. >> it was a pretty aggressive hit, hitting the water about 15
to 20 miles an hour. >> reporter: the video shows him exit the plane a couple of hundred miles from hawaii where his 400-mile flight delivering the plane was to end. >> without any injuries is a pretty remarkable thing to be able to say. >> reporter: he survived this. >> it's -- it's still a little kind of surreal to me. >> reporter: thanks to a remarkable parachute and a quick response from the coast guard and a nearby holland america cruise ship. after he exited the plane and floated over on a raft, they sent a vessel nearby to pull him to safety. >> this is the life jacket. >> reporter: remember that life jacket he wore in the gopro video? now morton carries it with him. physical proof that he survived. morton works for a company that transports planes. he was flying this one from tracy toward a final destination in australia where it was supposed to be handed off to its new owner. >> lucky guy. anne, do we have any idea what went wrong during the flight? >> reporter: that's still under investigation. it ran out of fuel but it had
just been outfitted with an extra fuel tank so there's some question if there may have been a valve malfunction that prevented the pilot from the accessing that extra fuel. live in the newsroom, anne makevoc, kpix 5. the marin county health department cop firms two children have come down with the measles. health officials say the patients are siblings, unvaccinated, and became infected outside of the county. the kids were out of school during the infectious period and will remain isolated for three weeks. a patient in northern california is being tested for the ebola virus. the patient is currently at uc- davis medical center in sacramento. one of eight hospitals in the state outfitted for potential ebola patients. the hospital says the patient is in good condition and is in isolation so there's no risk to the public. it's not clear yet when the test results will be complete. the deadline set by isis for a prisoner swap has come and gone but the fate of their hostages remains unclear this morning. isis wants to trade a japanese
journalist and a jordanian military pilot for a failed female suicide bomber with ties to al qaeda. the journalist's wife is pleading with both governments to agree to the demands. an 83-year-old buys an iphone in berkeley and then watch what happens. as he leaves the apple store, a man comes up from behind, he snatches the phone from the man's hands and takes off. some people in the parking lot tried to catch the thief but he got away. it happened last month at the busy 4th street shopping district in berkeley. police hope someone recognizes the suspect in these surveillance pictures. and here he is crossing 4th street a short time before the robbery and even a better look at the suspect once he made it across the street. a bay area comedian says what happened to him at a well- known berkeley restaurant was not funny at all. kamau bell claims an employee at the elmwood cafe racially profiled him when she told him to scram while he was talking to his wife and her friends at
the outdoor cafe. his wife is white. apparently the employee thought he may have been trying to sell her something. here's the cafe's response. >> i'm horrified. i mean, i -- i think it's just awful that somebody could come here and have an experience like that. i want to hear from him what happened. and then what we can do, um, to -- to move forward and do something about this situation. >> bell is perhaps best known for his fx show totally biased. bell blogged last night that he and his wife talked to the owner afterwards and decided to have a public conversation. er in not calling for anyone to be fired or a boycott. time now is 5:39. and the super bowl is this sunday in arizona. but a year from now, super bowl 50 will be played in santa clara. as kpix 5's joe vazquez reports, local organizers are in arizona getting a crash course in big game prep. >> reporter: with a million extra people here in phoenix for the festivities surrounding the biggest game of the year,
safety is a major priority. as tight as security is here at the pre-game festivities in downtown phoenix, about 15 miles away in glendale they are ratcheting it up even more. on game day, blackhawk helicopters will fly the perimeter of the stadium in glendale enforcing a no-fly zone. cameras will send video back to command centers. >> the more we see the better off we can be proactively monitoring. >> reporter: the faa reminds everyone this is a "no drone" zone. >> leave your drone at home. >> reporter: everything and everyone will be searched even the halftime superstar. officials said katy perry and her band will be looked over thoroughly. with all these extra cops it may seem like a war zone but the host committee chair from san francisco who is touring the festivities says there's a balance and they want to get it right when the games are in the bay area. >> you don't want security to
be too omni present or too intimidating but at the same time, fans want to know that there's security here that it's a comfortable place to bring their families to bring their kids, and that will be very morning for us in the bay area. >> reporter: joe vazquez, kpix 5. >> super bowl 50 will be played at levi's stadium but there will be events held throughout the bay area. it is 5:41 now. a woman answers her phone while being attacked and doesn't even know it. how some quick thinking from 900 miles away actually saved that woman's life. >> and taking a live look now at interstate 880 now on this friday morning, traffic moving right along. let's keep it that wa
beautiful big old bow and arrow on the embarcadero under mostly cloudy skies. thanks to photo journalist gregg welk for providing this beautiful view for us as we start our friday morning. we have hazy sunshine on tap today. highs in the 60s. we'll talk about the near and record warmth expected that's still coming up. >> well, you probably have never seen the grand canyon look just like this. time lapse video from the national park service shows a sea of fog filling the canyon. it's beautiful. it's called the total cloud inversion. it happens when most cold air gets trapped in the canyon below under a layer of warm air. doesn't happen very often but yesterday it was the second time in the last six weeks and they caught it on camera. >> beautiful. a call from telemarketers to sell a product turned into a call that saved a woman's life. >> ah! [ screaming and crying ] >> get out! >> an oregon woman on the other end never said hello but she unknowingly answered the phone
and got the telemarketer's attention. the person heard the woman's screens as she was beaten and that's when she called police 900 miles away. >> we were not going to hang up this phone on the young lady at all. as far as i was concerned, the people in that room, we were the only lifeline. >> deputies in oregon quickly arrived and found the woman gasping for air. they arrested her ex-boyfriend. the victim says her phone was in her back pocket and she didn't know who called police. it is 5:45 now. it's friday. are we "friday light" out on the roads there, elizabeth? >> eh. so so. they just turned on the metering lights. they have been turning them on earlier and earlier. it used to be right around now 5:45 and that was early to switch on the lights and now all this week they have been on at 5:40, today 5:39. if you time out your commute like others minute by minute this affects you. so you're already stacked up to
the overcrossing and metering lights have been on in the cash and fastrak lanes for a while. we have a traffic alert still in effect in san leandro. there was an overnight accident northbound 880 at marina boulevard. did some damage to the sand barrels there. so they have the left lane blocked off and we have a bit of a jam-up now to -- looks like maybe the 238 interchange? the estimated time of opening about 7. so those delays are probably going to get worse before they get better. so if you are maybe heading to oakland airport into oakland for whatever, you may hit a bit of a snag there in san leandro. but the oakland commute looks okay if you are hopping on the nimitz. it's friday. so we like to ask what drives you crazy on your commute. viewer ronald wants to know about cars making turns in bike lanes. he writes:
>> well, we asked the san francisco bike coalition and it's true, drivers should merge into the bike lane when making a right turn. but the general rule is first come, first served applies. so if a bike is there first, the car should wait to turn until it's safe. but if the driver is ahead of the bicyclist the person waits for the car to turn or pass to the left. thanks, we want to know what drives you crazy during your commute. ask a question or share a gripe by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. or tweet me at #ewengerkpix and watch to see if your question gets answered on air. that's a check of your "kcbs traffic." and bicyclist extraordinaire roberta gonzales has your forecast! >> we have a 40-miler planned for tomorrow morning. good morning. this is awesome to watch this. take a look at this right now. this is the scene in san jose. i have been noticing minute by
